Reason For Sale:

The Seller is seeking to transfer 100% of the business to an energetic and pet-loving Owner-Operator who possesses some business savviness and experience. The Seller desires to stay with the business as an employee and continue their love and passion for grooming pets.

Owner Qualifications:

A love for pets combined with business ownership experience.


Pet grooming is driven by customer service and the pet owner's preference on groomer's style and techniques. Similar to regular hair salons- quality, service, location, and pricing may be key discriminators between grooming service providers. This salon is fully booked for several months and there is room to add more groomers and expand available services.

Potential Growth:

The business does not have a marketing or advertising program and relies on word-of-mouth and basic social media to keep the appointments booked. There is room to add more groomers as well as expanding the pet spa services, which is an area of significant potential growth as pet owners are trending more towards increased spending on pet care.


Seller seeks a full cash purchase offer and does not desire an earnout or a Seller's note. This business has been pre-qualified for bank financing assuming a highly qualified and creditworthy candidate.
